NEGATIVE ION RESEARCHTM
Negative ions are beneficial to human body in four major ways
Points reprinted from "Economic Daily News" - January 30, 2002
Points noted by John Heinerman, Ph.D.
- Strengen the functions of autonomic nerves
- Reinforce collagen (tissues that are resilient and tension-related)
- Improve the permeability of the cell's prototype plasma membranes (improved metabolism)
- Strengthen the body's immune system
Negative ions neutralize pollutants and provide positive effects on health to
- Stimulate the reticulo-endothelial system, a group of defense cells in our bodies that marshal our resistance to disease
- Act on our capacity to absorb and utilize oxygen. Negative ions in the bloodstream accelerate the delivery of oxygen to our cells and tissues
- Speed up oxidation of serotonin (5-hydroxtryptamine) in the blood. This is well known to have far reaching effects on mood, pain relief and sexual drive.
Purification of Blood: Research done by Dr. Tanaka in Japan revealed that when negative ionization is introduced, the ions in calcium and natrium (salt) in the blood increases, and the blood is purified by alkalinity rising in the blood.
Reviving the Cell: When the amount of negative ions in the blood is increased, cell functions are activated. The electrical material exchange speeds up those functions and, nutrition is fully absorbed by the cell and waste material is expelled. Metabolism is boosted and the functions of that cell are gradually revived.
Increases Immunity: As the amount of negative ions increases, the Gamma Globulin in the blood increases producing blood rich protein and antibodies.
Control Function of the Autonomic Nervous System: Dr. Tanaka found that negative ions control the balance in the autonomic nervous system between the insulin and adrenal functions. The result is strong resistance to diseases.
Inhaling negative ions regulates the production of serotonin inside the brain. The overproduction of serotonin inside the brain is the cause of migraine headaches.
A study at Columbia University suggested that negative ion treatment is more effective than anti-depressant drugs such as Prozac and Zolof, and there are no side effects with negative ions.
The overproduction of serotonin (chemical produced inside the brain) also causes fatigue, and negative ions regulate the production of serotonin inside the brain.
A study in France found that negative ionizers helped people to sleep better, by regulating the production of the chemical serotonin in the brain.
Mental Performance and Concentration
Several tests have shown people exposed to negative ion treatment perform much better in mentally-oriented activities than those who are not.
Due to test results performed by Russian scientists, negative ionizers were always installed in the locker rooms and resting places for the Russian athletes.
Studies performed in one hospital found that burn patients were far more likely to recover more quickly and thoroughly.
Study of protective action of negatively charged air ions during acute stress in rats with different types of behavior.

Exposition of rats during immobilization to negatively charged air ions prevented the development of pathological changes typical for acute stress. Such protective action of negative air ions was observed in all the experimental animals independently of their types of behavior.
